CLASSLA: Knowledge centre for South Slavic languages

The CLARIN Knowledge Centre for South Slavic languages (CLASSLA) offers expertise on language resources and technologies for South Slavic languages. Its basic activities are (1) giving researchers, students, citizen scientists and other interested parties information on the available resources and technologies via its documentation, (2) supporting them in producing, modifying or publishing resources and technologies via its helpdesk and (3) organizing training activities.

The helpdesk of CLASSLA can be contacted via helpdesk.classla@clarin.si. The helpdesk offers additional clarifications regarding the CLASSLA documentation (detailed below) and support in using, modifying, producing, or publishing resources and technologies for South Slavic languages.

The Knowledge Centre currently offers frequently asked questions (FAQ) documentation for the Slovene, Croatian, Serbian, Bulgarian and Macedonian language. It also offers documentation on how to use CLARIN.SI web services which currently cover Slovene, Croatian and Serbian.

CLASSLA is operated by CLARIN.SI and CLADA-BG.

These are the stories that motivated the creation of CLASSLA.
